Fujitsu's HD Haven For SatTrans

Fujitsu IP-9500 Fujitsu Computer Products of America, Inc. has announced their Fujitsu IP-9500e MPEG-4 AVC codec now features Digital Video Broadcasting-Satellite (DVB-S) and Digital Video Broadcasting-Satellite-Second Generation (DVB-S2) modulation functionality to transmit HD signals over satellite links.

The integration of DVB-S/S2 capabilities into the IP-9500 eliminates the need for separate modulators, enabling broadcasters to maintain superior HD picture quality produced by the IP-9500 while reducing overall costs of transmitted HD signals via satellite. Fujitsu will demo the DVB-S/S2 feature and other capabilities of the IP-9500 during the 2009 NAB Show (Booth SU10921), April 20-23, 2009 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas. The IP-9500’s exceptional picture quality at low bit rates and low-latency enables HD satellite news gathering (SNG) and live events transmission using existing broadcast satellite infrastructure.
